Aggressive Driving Detail
Police say their job is to fight crime and stop the bad guys, and if you’re driving in a threatening manner, that means you. West Hazleton Police were out in full force last weekend. 6 officers focused on finding motorists who decided not to obey traffic signs, were speeding and those who chose to get behind the wheel after drinking booze. Chief Brian Buglio says this aggressive driving detail helps to make the roads safer and lets residents know good ole’ fashioned policing is alive and still successful. In the end, West Hazleton police handed out 20 citations, caught three drivers who they believe were driving drunk and they landed a wanted man who was sent to jail. Even those who were parked illegally were ticketed. West Hazleton Police Chief Brian Buglio says this isnt the last time his department will be seen saturating the community in this manner.
